When Jack is sent to Hazelwood, Iowa, to live with his strange aunt and uncle, he expects a summer of boredom. Little does he know that the people of Hazelwood have been waiting for him for a long time....

When he arrives, three astonishing things happen: First, he makes friends - not imaginary friends but actual friends. Second, he is beaten up by the town bully; the bullies at home always ignored him. Third, the richest man in town begins to plot Jack's imminent, and hopefully painful, demise. It's up to Jack to figure out why suddenly everyone cares so much about him. Back home he was practically, well, invisible.

The Mostly True Story of Jack is a tale of magic, friendship, and sacrifice. It's about things broken and things put back together. Above all, it's about finding a place to belong.

    " This one was really good, involving a little bit of magic, but not so much to exactly call it fantasy....I really wished the story had ended later. I didn't like the ending very much, but overall it was great. "

    " I know people have been raving about this book. I liked it, but I didn't think it was great. The reaveal took too long for my tastes and at the end I wasn't satisfied. "

    " I read this aloud to my 7 year old and 9 year old sons. The 7 year old lost interest by my 9 year old was so excited to get back to it. I felt like it was all over the place. The author was trying to build mystery but it felt forced. Eventually I didn't even care why the crazy things that were happening, happened. It was so complex but didn't really ever come together. And the fantastical aspects were not described well enough to draw a clear picture. In the end, a lot of the mysteries still didn't make sense or come together. "
